The Veyron is a high-performance supercar created by Bugatti. The Veyron is designed purely for speed. Everything around the car circulates around the engine. The Veyron features an 8Litre W16 engine with quad-turbochargers, therefore gaining the name Veyron 16.4 . Many features are designed especially for the Veyron such as the spoiler, the radiators, the electronics, the transmission etc. The Veyron is capable of producing 987hp. This is equivalent to 1001ps. However, it is sold to other markets as producing 1001hp. This car was once the fastest car in the world. This title was taken away by the SSC Ultimate Aero TT. The average top speed of the Veyron is 408.75km/h. When the car reaches 220km/h, hydraulics lower the car by 8.9cm. With the help of it's spoiler, 770pounds of downforce pushes the car on the track. Once the car reaches 220km/h, the driver must use a special 'Top Speed Key' to attain the car's top speed. All these cool gadgets makes the Veyron an extremely advanced supercar.
